Another small snow

In similar fashion to our previous snow this month, the GFS and NAM are breaking tomorrow’s snow chances into two distinct segments.  With the latest NAM data, the only significant difference between the two models is with timing.  The NAM is a little faster, a common difference between the two.

Here’s how it looks now:  light snow should begin around daybreak in Louisville (earlier south of the city).  This will fade away by late morning, leaving only small amounts for the Louisville area. Maybe half an inch here, but a generous inch is possible over southern KY.  By late afternoon, a strong upper air system will plunge over the region and produce another period of light snow.  The morning system will take most of the available moisture away as it moves east.  Daytime heating will melt most of the morning snow before the afternoon snow arrives.

When the second snow ends by early evening, there probably won’t be much to show for the day’s efforts.  About .5″ locally, but 1″-3″ possible along and east of I-75.


Yesterday’s average temperature was exactly “normal” and today we’re back to above normal temperatures.  In fact, we haven’t had a below normal day here in almost three weeks.  January 9th was the most recent colder-than-normal day here.


“young Americans” won the Academy Award for Best Documentary of 1968 during the 1969 awards ceremony in 1969.  Later it was discovered had been show in a theater in October 1967, making it ineligible for the 1968 award.  The Oscar was revoked, the only time that has happened in Oscar history.
